Has much potential.
Hotel resort under construction. Staff needs training in customer service and basic food service issues. Rooms are great, but after that, you are on your own.

Nice place, in my case it was perfect for a family vacation, we did not have any need to go outside of the place, we liked that the room has everything needed to cook and eat inside the village, so if you want to cook no need to pay for restaurant food, breakfast was included and beach is beautiful, ocean was quiet and easy

Believe the Ratings
Beautiful property on a beautiful beach. Nice villas, nice pool, nice grounds. No service, lousy restaurant. When I checked in I asked for help with luggage as it was approx 150 meters to the villa from the parking lot. No one available. No cart, no suggestion. Asked about room service. Said no, go ask restaurant. They took order and said they would deliver. An hour later I came back to find it sitting on the counter cold. No apology. This time they said they don't deliver, but asked if I wanted to reserve table for dinner. Yes, for a lousy buffet you have to reserve a place. And they wanted me to wear one of those wrist bands all weekend like they were an amusement park. Really a shame. Lots of potential. Obviously lousy management. All wasn't lost as I had a wonderful deep tissue massage from A_____. Believe the ratings not the pictures. Go to one of the many other hotels and some very good restaurants in Samara, but not here.
